WINTER PREP TIPS

Your Snow Pusher is an expensive machine. The last thing you want is for it to break, right?

Let’s look at the best snow pusher tips to make sure your snow pusher is ready for the first snow.

#1 Check your Manual

When it’s time to get your snow pusher ready for the upcoming season, the first thing you should do is find the manual.

This is not silly. In the manual, you will find the information you have forgotten during the offseason.

Your manual should provide a series of steps to follow for the beginning of the season.

It will remind you of things you should double check before use.

#2 Store Your Snow Pusher Inside

This tip is non-negotiable come winter, but it’s relevant in the summer too.

It’s never a bad idea to protect your investments from the elements, hot or cold. This tip is especially relevant if you live somewhere with high heat or lots of rain.

You want your snow pusher ready and in tip top condition when winter comes.

#3 Flip or Replace your Rubber Edge

Nothing makes people cringe more than the sound of metal scraping on something rough. It doesn’t only sound bad, it’s bad for the bucket of your snow pusher as well.

You can make sure this doesn’t happen by checking the rubber blade at the end of the season. Look in your manual for suggestions on how long a blade should last.

If the rubber edge has chunks taken out of it or is not flush to the ground, it’s time for a new one. You can find rubber edge replacements here for our products.

If you have another brand of snow pusher, find that company’s website.

Make sure you check the manual or ask your supplying company to teach you how to fasten the new rubber securely.

#4 Train your Operators

You made an investment when you purchased your snow pusher. You want to make sure it stays in top working condition.

That means the people who are driving it need up to date training on how to run it. Check their experience before hiring them, specific to snow removal.

Before they go out on a job, have them read the owners manual. This way, if there’s an issue you (or they) can catch it fast.

Take care to only hire trained professions when letting them use your best snow pusher.

Bonus Tip!

Give any accessories you have for you snow pusher the maintenance they need as well. If you notice that any need replacement, you can buy them for our products here or on your manufacturer’s website.

If you think something is on its way out, stay on the safe side and replace it. That goes for all parts of your snow pusher, not just its accessories.

It can never hurt to be extra prepared in those dark winter mornings!
